...open with "Help on the Way" instead of "Paradise waits?"

Well, it's not an early one, but 4/12/83 Binghamton he does it. Opening the second set...really...you can't get the first lyric right!? I shouldn't pick on Jerry, but...it's there for the picking.

Kind of like Bob does on Jack Straw 8-4-74 in the first stanza:

Now the die is shaken now the die must fall
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too...(oops)

Why go with just one? How about hearing some of everyone's favorite brain farts?

I always liked Jerry's "...all your guineas I will burn" from a Peggy-O (a tune that Jerry seemed to have a particularly hard time getting through without at least one flub).

I cannot think of the specific examples but I know a classic f up of Jerry - the opening line of Dire Wolf:

In the BACKWASH of fennario, the wolves are running round

Why he says backwash instead of timbers is beyond me. I know Ive heard it multiple times, and specifically in a show I just reviewed not too long ago. Im gonna have to llok it up and edit this post..

EDIT: It was 3/25/83. My notes looked like this:

A double time Dire kicks off next with Jerry proclaiming “From the Backwash of Frenario” to start off the tune. I laughed, but this one was not so good either. Definitely one of the weirder Dire’s out there. Really fast and nasally and just hurried in general. Not exactly the comforting storytelling session that this wonderful tune can be at its best"

"Why he says backwash instead of timbers is beyond me. I know Ive heard it multiple times, and specifically in a show I just reviewed not too long ago."

I've heard this many times as well. I think he's trying to say backwoods. The last verse before the final chorus starts out, "In the backwoods of Fennario," so he likely just mixed up the verses, as he and Bob often do. Definitely sounds like backwash though.

In the final verse of Dire Wolf the lyric is backwash.

Wow. I have always just assumed it was backwoods. Never read through the lyrics before. Since the first verse is “timbers of Fennario,” I thought he was just switching it up and saying “backwoods of Fennario” for the last verse. Even though I hear backwash, that never made sense to me, so I think my mind just kept telling me it was “backwoods.” Anyway, glad I know now lol! I find it pretty funny that I've always had the lyric wrong. There may be other misheard lyrics that I've never looked up before, but I definitely know that Let it Grow is “as well to count the Asians dancing on a pin.”

the guineas in peggy-o are british coins of the era. makes sense in the lyrics "i would marry you, but your guineas are too few" and "what would your mother think if she heard my guineas clink".

as for vocal flubs: i can't remember the date at the moment, but i recently heard a morning dew where, at what may be the most anticipated vocal in any GD song- the final line of the song after a long instrumental build- jerry sings "I" instead of "it", resulting in the confusing line "i guess i... doesn't matter anyway".

I like the sugaree from 10-27-91. At one point Jer sings something like "za no naba do"

Alss the maggies Farm from 12-30-90 Vince sings something like " I can't remember the words to this song...."

Forgot this one:

During Jack Straw from the SPAC show 06/18/83, Bobbie seems to have a Buckwheat moment and instead of "...half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light", he comes up with "...haf a me de tudon, ba de ta-ta-ta".

Check it, you'll see.

Weir's entire performance of El Paso 11/2/84 Bezerkley.

Not a vocal flub, but at the Philly Spectrum 4/85 show when Bob tries to kick a balloon that was on the stage to the beat of Estimated solo. He missed and landed flat on his butt - yet, continued to play. You can hear the whole arena roar with laughter.
